Diabetes and hyperglycemia have immediate and long-term effects in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is essential that clinicians who care for individuals with diabetes understand the importance of nutrition therapy for common GI conditions. In addition to promoting health and preventing malnutrition, nutrition therapy can be used to manage GI symptoms, improve quality of life, as well as manage the disease itself. For example, nutrition therapy is often a first line of treatment to manage symptoms in those with irritable bowel syndrome and gastroparesis. While the only treatment for celiac disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a gluten-free diet and diet and exercise, respectively.
Attendees will have an increased knowledge of the gastrointestinal conditions in diabetes and how to help patients improve GI symptoms and their quality of life with nutrition/dietary interventions.
At the end of this presentation,
participants will be able to:
-- Assess if a patient is appropriate for the low FODMAP diet
-- Describe the low FODMAP diet approach
-- Describe dietary modifications to reduce gastroparesis symptoms
-- Describe nutrition recommendations for patients with Celiac disease, GERD, and NAFLD
